GPS velocity field (MIT 2019.0) for the East African Rift System generated by King et al.
This GPS-derived velocity field for East Africa was generated from continuous (cGPS) and survey-mode (sGPS) data acquired between 1994 and December 2018 and is part of a larger regional velocity field determination (Investigators Robert King, Michael Floyd, Robert Reilinger). The data files are in ASCII text format and were created as part of the collaborative project called A Community Velocity Field for East Africa. They are an updated version of the 2016 solutions that are available at http://dx.doi.org/10.1594/IEDA/321764. Also included is documentation describing the data sources and calculations used in generating the updated velocity field. Funding was provided by NSF grants EAR-1551753 and EAR-1551823.
